Great if you want experience with a fast growing beauty startup

6/29/2022 - Customer Success

Pros

Get a lot of first-hand experience in an aggressive growth company. Big pushes are all hands on deck. CEO and COO are both very inspiring.

Cons

Employee discount isn't much more than subscription service discount which, based on early pay, could make product out of reach for some employees.
Kate's Story

A pastry chef with dry skin, Kate tried using one of her favorite ingredients, cocoa butter, on her body. The results were transformational. But cocoa butter is rock hard in its natural state. Kate wondered if she could make it easier to apply without diluting its raw power as a solid. She thought about how she worked with chocolate, went into the kitchen, melted it down, and blended in luxurious oils. After years of perfecting the recipe, the Body Stone was born: a solid moisturizer that glides on like silk—without the sticky wax, preservatives, synthetics, or stabilizers traditionally used to make lotion bars. Kate's innovative Stone-shaped solid moisturizers are waterless concentrates designed to intensely nourish the skin—a little goes a long way. By removing water from our formulas, we are able to create sustainable, plastic-free packaging and avoid some of the biggest culprits of waste in the beauty industry.

It's Everyday Magic | Kate McLeod Simple, powerful ingredients to give you moisturizing results you can see and feel. Waterless, plastic-free, with no waste ever.
Creator of the Body Stone, a solid moisturizer & self care practice. Recipes excite me. Rituals ground me. Sharing moments of everyday magic. ✨
